Had been recommended to try and was really pleased we did the food was extremely good maybe a little expensive but maybe I'm more aware of the cost having just retired from running my own pub for the last 9 years than most but we would go again. I had the macaroni cheese which is probably the best I've had...

Our room was lovely, very clean and comfortable. We didn't eat at venue however but did have drinks in the bar which was very pleasant. Tucked away but found using Google maps easily. Would stay again if in Bath.

One of the best places we've overnighted as a couple. The room was classical, with comfortable bed, elegant bathroom, warm, all the little touches that make such a difference. Wifi was really fast. The pub has a log fire (in Feb), a good choice of real ales and cider and delightful staff serving. Our evening meal was excellent and good...

We brought a friend this time and we all enjoyed our lunch. We all had a starter - I think I had a terrine of some sort served on crispy bread with big capers, delicious. I went for the pheasant saltimbocca again, one of us had the venison burger and the other had sea bass. All well prepared and cooked...

Sadly gone downhill . Menu reduced and quality of food . White wine medium price and yet tasted cheap and not chilled . Staff not very happy when asked for colder wine . Steak was good but chips tasted of old fat and tomato that came with it was a cheap tasteless tomato rather than previously small vine tomato ....

It is always disappointing to receive bad reviews, but especially from regular customers who we have known well for many years. We felt that your behaviour on the night in question was petty and unacceptable. That you decided not to talk to your waitress, but to only speak through your husband, shows that you probably weren't in a reasonable state...

Been meaning to come here for about 10 years and finally made it. Very nicely laid out little pub that focuses on food rather than beer so it's definitely in the gastropod category that to be honest I am not that fond of. The food was very good - some imaginative twists to the dishes. There was only 1 veggie...

Many thanks for such a charming review. Sorry about the service charge but it is only on the food and all our staff decided that this was far fairer than 12.5% on food and drink as most other places do. Please note that all our service charge and any tips go to the staff

We stopped here on impulse after noting that all car parks in Bath were full, and we needed lunch. As a gastropub this is a little bit pricy. However we enjoyed reading the menu, and we thought that our meals were tasty and very well presented. We were happy after the meal. Good ale too.

We stopped off in this lovely pub on our way to Dorset. We were starving but unfortunately they had stopped serving breakfast by the time we arrived, however they offered to make us some bacon sandwiches. Very nice food. Very nice people.

We stayed at Wheelwright Arms for 2 nights over Christmas. Our room was warm, spacious, clean and very comfortable with lovely view of the valley. Dinner was excellent and good selection of wine by the glass. Staff are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this tucked away gem in a beautiful setting.
